Beautiful blackcurrant fruits as well as notes of ground herbs, flowers, black tea, and forest floor all jump from the glass, and it’s just as good on the palate, with flawless balance, no hard edges, and a great finish. It’s a brilliant wine, from a brilliant vintage, from a brilliant winemaker. Drink it any time over the coming decade. collapse

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2015
One of the more fruit-forward Pinots, the 293-case 2013 Pinot Noir Machado is 100% whole-cluster fermented and aged in neutral oak (as are all of the Pinot Noirs here). It offers terrific aromas of plums, Bing cherries... expand One of the more fruit-forward Pinots, the 293-case 2013 Pinot Noir Machado is 100% whole-cluster fermented and aged in neutral oak (as are all of the Pinot Noirs here). It offers terrific aromas of plums, Bing cherries, licorice and ample floral characteristics in a full-bodied, big, textured and layered style. While showing plenty of fruit, it's still perfectly balanced and stays fresh and thrillingly drinkable. In short, it's a downright sexy 2013 that will drink nicely for at least 4-6 years. - Jeb Dunnuck collapse

The 2013 Pinot Noir Machado presents a typical expression of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot in its rich, pliant fruit. Dark red and blue stone fruits, mint, lavender, violet and spice notes abound in a rich, broad-shouldered Pinot... expand The 2013 Pinot Noir Machado presents a typical expression of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot in its rich, pliant fruit. Dark red and blue stone fruits, mint, lavender, violet and spice notes abound in a rich, broad-shouldered Pinot with tons of complexity and textural richness. The 100% whole clusters are pretty much buried by the pure intensity of the fruit. collapse
